ACEL’s 17th Anniversary Celebration on 04.07.2023 (Mesa, Arizona)

April 7, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free – $35.00

YOU ARE INVITED! Please join us! We are celebrating the great work that ACEL has accomplished in the community over the past 17 years! Come and join us for an evening of recognition, celebration, friendship & networking.

Supporting and inspiring the business community and young professionals is something that ACEL aspires to achieve. One of the ways we set to achieve this is by bringing today’s inspiring leaders to share their story of success and their personal message to our community.

This year, our Keynote Speaker is Ben Henry, recently appointed as Director of the Department of Liquor Licenses and Control (DLLC) in January 2023. Previous to Director Henry’s appointment, the Arizona native was raised and educated in Phoenix. He served as the Deputy Director of Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board (AZPOST), where he served as liaison between the Agency and user agencies and represented state law enforcement interests.

Henry has over 27-years of (sworn) law enforcement experience and worked for two of the largest law enforcement agencies in Arizona – the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, where he retired as the Chief Deputy; and the Phoenix Police Department, as a Commander. The first half of Henry’s career was mostly spent in operational divisions, conducting complex criminal investigations, and managing crime suppression programs. As he ascended through the promotional ranks, his responsibilities became more administrative.

The latter half of Henry’s career was spent mostly in the Human Resource area – dealing with complex budgets, policies and procedures, training; and the wellness and retention of City/County’s greatest resource – its employees.

Henry has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Arizona State University and a Master’s Degree in Education from Northern Arizona University. He also earned a Certified Public Manager designation from Arizona State University and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy.

It is no surprise that ACEL has invited Ben Henry to share his story. COme join us and bring your friends! We will have cocktails, lite bites and enjoy a Pacific Islander dance! Don’t miss out!
